Not all couples view honeymoons as clearly as this
Can I bring my mother in law? This was a question asked by a honeymooner when booking their romantic getaway.
It comes from a list of strange questions asked by people booking honeymoon trips, compiled by the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA).
One agent was asked if they could reserve a honeymoon suite not just for the inquiring couple but another pair tying the knot too. Another if people spoke English in the UK.
One traveller pleaded with an agent not to let his latest fiancé know he was returning to the destination where he took his first wife on honeymoon.
Why leave anything to chance on holiday?
Wherever couples travel on their honeymoon, one question that can be answered straight away is should I take out travel insurance? Any reputed travel agent would most certainly say 'yes' as it can protect you against unforeseen circumstances.
Hand held to the perfect honeymoon
ASTA CEO and president Zane Kerby says it's obvious from its odd request list that some tourists require their hand being held more than others.
He says the profession knows the sort of questions that travellers often should ask, but don't.
It published the odd request list to commemorate National Travel and Tourism Week in the US.
